A Bouquet of Dilemma
“Good girls don’t mix with bad boys,” that’s what they told young, conservative Tobi, when she’s smitten by alluring, playboy Richard. Ignoring his background and an uncertain future, she plunges into his exciting world of romance. But Richard disappoints them all, giving Tobi an engagement ring before leaving for London.
Tobi’s world is shattered when Richard brutally dumps her. Can she ever love again? Or will the refined, self-accomplished Oba remain a distraction from her heart-broken stupor?
When repentant Richard resurfaces, re-awakening her heart and all the buried passion, Tobi has to define what true love means to her.
An enchanting story of the love life of a Nigerian undergraduate; about values, prejudices and challenges that determine the choices we make about love and life.
